Legislators are keeping a Vikings stadium proposal rolling despite setbacks just a week ago.
The stadium proposal cleared two House committees this month but stumbled last week when the House Government Operations and Elections Committee rejected it, 9-6. Supporters, led by Shakopee's Cory Merrifield at SaveTheVikes.org, and backed by NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell, rallied to keep the bill moving forward—which the the Senate Jobs and Economic Growth Committee did on Tuesday.
Shakopee Mayor Brad Tabke, Shakopee Chamber of Commerce leaders and local legislators in January proposed building a stadium in Shakopee for the Vikings.
